Performance management

Performance management is on the agenda for almost every employer and manager. Raising performance levels of an organisation and / or an individual can be addressed in many different ways and the successful strategy is unique for each set of circumstances.

Developing clear and consistent performance standards is the first step to creating a framework for staff to work within so that they can understand performance expectations. Once these are in place the strategies to not only manage but to improve performance require a structured and supportive approach.
